Forum: opensource_movies Subject: Any one else having metadata problems?

im feeling like the whiner on the board, but anyways uploaded a short film with metadata, it says there was none found and its waiting for me.. sent a letter about it to info@archive said they recieved it but havent heard anything back for over a week now- so was wondering, is there a way i can re upload just the metadata? looking for some way to add just that file and cant find anywhere.. thanks

For those of you with problems with metadata, or who need to tweak something else in a submission you've entered but that hasn't been approved yet:

There seems to be a bug in the Contributions page interface. If you click on the link under "item identifier", it'll just bring you to a page with an error message. However, you can use an URL similar to the one you'd use for already approved movies, namely:

http://www.archive.org/movies/details-edit.php?identifier=

Just append the identifier of your movie (e.g. "movie_name_thisnthat") to the end of the URL and voilĂ , you're in a place where you can edit the entry, tweak the meta-data and so on.

(Someone may want to fix this eventually in the interface, Tracey?)

In cases like "waiting for user to enter metadata", we suggest that the most effective thing typically is to:
1) note the exact identifier of your movie/audio
contribution
2) go back to your FTP upload server and recreate the subdirectory with that *exact* name, if necessary, and re-upload any files that should have been there but aren't.

You will likely need to edit the "program details" and "file details" to make sure XML files are (re)created. For movies, that's urls:
http://www.archive.org/movies/movies-meta-files.php
http://www.archive.org/movies/details-edit.php

Similar story for most audio problems (and then use different URLs than the 2 above 8-)

That's really all that's necessary to fix the "waiting for metadata" problem.

Most typically what's been happening is some users are renaming folders and some upload servers went full and the XML couldn't be added to the upload dirs (and then some users started trying to rename or change things).

Meanwhile, I've fixed some bugs (the dreaded "nothing to see" /movies/curate.php bug I introduced for 1-2 weeks, which Madhavananda mentioned just now 8-) and freed up many stuck XML edits.

I hope this helps!

Tracey, the movies-meta-files URLs doesn't really take me anywhere. It just tells me that "You must supply the ID of the item you are modifying". Evidently I need to feed in the identifier over the URL, but $_GET['identifier'] doesn't seem to do the trick.

Hmm, I still see no difference in the interface at my end. Is this still a work in progress? Clicking on movie_name_this-and-that (item identifier) brings me to Problem with item: Exhausted all choices for locator URLs. Item cannot be found. and "curate" brings me to Item not public yet -- only curators may preview this item.

Basically all we need is a link like the one I posted in my previous post with the item_id appended as the value of $_GET['identifier']. Of course more tech savyy users can figure that out even without a hyperlink, but it would make things a bit easier. :)

That is, unless you already did just that and it just doesn't show up yet.

There was a sitewide metadate problem that was apparently fixed this weekend. What happens when you try to update the "File Options" now?

well, it went through, said process completed, but this was over two days ago now and it still hasnt showed up on the site- does it usually take a while after it says completed?
